About EAAI

The Eighth Symposium on Educational Advances in Artificial Intelligence (EAAI-17) will be held February 3-4, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. The symposium is collocated with AAAI-18.

EAAI-18 provides a venue for researchers and educators to discuss pedagogical issues and share resources related to teaching and using AI in education across a variety of curricular levels (K-12 through postgraduate training), with an emphasis on undergraduate and graduate teaching and learning. The symposium seeks contributions showing how to more effectively teach AI, as well as how themes from AI may be used to enhance education more broadly (for example, in introductory computing courses or as a means for teaching computational thinking). We encourage the sharing of innovative educational approaches that convey or leverage AI and its many subfields, including robotics, machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision, and others.

EAAI-18 is expected to include two invited talks (including a talk of the recipient of the AAAI/EAAI Outstanding AI Educator Award 2018); a panel with AI education experts; Model AI Assignments; special tracks on Providing Research Experiences for Undergraduate Students, Best Practices for Running an AI Research Group, and AI for Education and Outreach; and other exciting activities.

Call for Participation

The call for participation is now available here or on AAAI's website.

EAAI-18 provides several submission types:

In addition, several special track papers are considered for EAAI-18. Details for each track are available in the CFP.

AAAI/EAAI Outstanding Educator Award

The AAAI/EAAI Outstanding Educator award will be presented annually to a person (or group of people) who has made major contributions to AI education that provide long-lasting benefits to the AI community. Examples include innovating teaching methods, providing service to the AI education community, generating pedagogical resources, designing curricula, and educating students outside of higher education venues (or the general public) about AI.

The award consists of a certificate, a $1,000 honorarium, complimentary one-year AAAI membership (new or renewal), and free conference registration to the upcoming EAAI conference and co-located AAAI conference where the award will be conferred. The full Call for Nominations will be available soon at http://www.aaai.org/Awards/awards.php. For more information, please write to eaaiaward@aaai.org.
